Lest We Forget — it’s a phrase not well understood by many people any more. Not only does it sound old, but taken out of context it could mean anything. Most people know it as a sombre expression of remembrance. If we forget the horror of war, we’re doomed to repeat it. Canada has been at war for the past decade. It’s safe to say that plenty of people do not understand “Lest We Forget” anymore.
One such Forgetter is the Mayor of Halifax. I’m proud to be an Occupier, and am disappointed there are so many Forgetters.
When you read this on Saturday morning (or later), it’s possible that the protest camp at Victoria Park in Regina will have been destroyed by police and our own Forgetter, Mayor Fiacco.
Lest We Forget, and go down that terrible path to sending men over the top to die in no-man’s-land again. Are the 99 percent being sent over the top?
This is from early Friday morning. No police came to Victoria Park on Friday, like they did in Halifax. Will they stand down on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, etc. too? The Canadian Constitution says they must, but the constitution of men ordered to break the law and their morals, may not hold forever.
